I apologize for getting the nomenclature mixed up.
You have a good point, however I'm not really interested in this reaction, I'm interested in making small quantities of high purity H2SO4 for my organic chemistry experiments. Many organic solvents such as Diethyl ether require small amounts of sulphuric acid. The alternative would be to contact my friends at the steel mill and ask them for a 25L 6½ gallon jug of industrial grade (fairly contaminated) H2SO4. Do you see my goal now?
A carbon/graphite electrode will disintegrate filling the water with coal particles, easy to filter out but still something I'd like to avoid. Question: is there any alternative, other than carbon, to an expensive platinum electrode?
If not, where do I buy platinum electrodes?
All help is greatly appreciated!
